3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at GABF 09. Pours a deep copper with a thin lasting head. Aroma is spicy with both earthy hops, and rye bread, toast, light caramel malts, some toffee light citrus and lemongrass- orangezest as well. Flavor is earthy, zesty spiced rye bread, ok caramel and toffee malt sweetness in the backbone, decent although light overall on the hops- and mostly clean finish. Average IPA.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Excellent. Unique Rye character in the taste - great IPA nose. Rye imparts a slightly sweeter taste which remains balanced by the hop additions. Great one

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Crescent Moon...pours deep red color with a moderate off-white head that settles quickly. Aroma is of flowery hops and is somewhat grainy. Flavor is robust and is comprised of lots of floral and citrus hop flavors, but with a nice malt backbone to keep this highly drinkable. Body is relatively thick for an IPA, and this one bordered on drinking like an IIPA...this is probably the best offering I’ve had from the NE Brewing Co to date...good work!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Leavenworth Bar. A beautiful beer. Deep reddish copper with a thick off-white head of fairly remarkable retention. Very nice floral and perfume hop aroma with a discernible blast of chocolate. The flavor is quite amazing. In spite of the huge hop bill, this is a dominant malty-sweet beer. The rye makes this smooth and balanced. It’s just too easy to drink this one fast. This was brewed by Tyson from a State Fair Best-of-Show recipe.
